In The Shadow Of Dallas

5 posts in this topic

I was recently poking around in one of the many used book stores in my area, and I found a copy of "In The Shadow Of Dallas - A Primer on the Assassination of President Kennedy", published by the editors of Ramparts Magazine, 1967. I haven't read through it yet, but it looks pretty insightful for the time. I also picked up a copy of The Ruby Cover Up by Seth Kantor. I haven't read that one yet. They also had a copy of the WC Witness Testimony, I was thinking of picking that one up if it's still there. Might provide some interesting, if not fanciful reading.

If the book of witness testimony was entitled "The Witnesses"... beware. The book was rushed out by the New York Times as a companion to the Warren Report. It presents testimony supporting the Commission's conclusion...which is to say it is a con job. How the editors of the New York Times could rationalize their showing the public the parts supporting the single-assassin conclusion, while omitting the many bits raising doubt about the single-assassin conclusion, is beyond me. Isn't that called propaganda? Isn't that the exact opposite of responsible journalism? Isn't that a violation of the public trust?

Pat,

It might have been that one, I don't remember, I'd have to give it a look-see again.

I figured right from the get-go that it's a con job. Anything related to the WC, in my mind, is useless except as to read what bs they were spinning & shoveling to the public. I would not put any stock in it.

Roger, did you read "In the Shadow of Dallas"? What did you think of it?

It's been a while since I've looked at it, but I liked it. It's a good, basic primer on the assassination, pretty insightful for January 1967.
